Budget 1.45 x Rev.2 is made in a metal case. Optics – only the glass. Chromatic aberrations removed. The adapter is sharper and more reliable than the budget 1.45x rev.1.

The lenses have multi-illumination, anti-glare or other coating. The diameter of the anamorphic adapter is 72 mm, the diameter of the front lens is 70 mm. Front thread for light filter 72 mm. You can set any 72 mm filters, and macro filters can be used for shooting very close objects.

The adapter can work with full-frame cameras, but in this case spherical aberrations increase. Spherical aberrations look like a blur at the edge of the frame. In fact, they shift the focus closer to the camera, creating a highlighted center effect and a beautiful bokeh. The edge blur works well for close - up portrait photography with the CloseUp filter.

This adapter is best used for APS-C and MFT cameras. The best performance of the adapter is shown on lenses with a focal length from 25 mm to 65 mm on cameras with a crop factor of 1.5 or 2 (APS-C or MFT).

The adapter is suitable for Canon 40mm 2.8, Canon 50mm 1.8, Helios 44-2 lens in APS -

C format. there is no vignetting on the full frame with a focal length of 58 mm (Helios) and on sensor frames 1.6 and 1.5 with a focal length of 40 mm. On sensor frames 2 (Micro 4/3, 16 mm sensor) there is no vignetting at a focal length of 30 mm. These values apply to lenses with a fixed focal length.  

When shooting close objects, the adapter can create an oval bokeh in the background.

The best sharpness occurs at a distance of 10 meters to 20 meters. Depending on the optical design of the main lens, diopters may be required at a distance closer than 3 meters +0.3/+0.5. if you need to shoot at close range, if there are no diopters, you can pinch the aperture of the main lens. Sharpness at infinity is in acceptable quality.


Length – 85 mm, diameter – 72 mm, mounting – 67 mm. Weight ~ 200 grams.


The adapter may have design differences that do not affect the main characteristics.


The adapter does not have a clamping ring included.
